  1. You should see the Game Faqs walkthroughs for the Dragon Warrior games - yowza!

  2. Hello guys,

    I would like to put under your attention the material that I've posted today on my blog:

    I'm sure that you will enjoy this link.

    Keep on Going, your blog contains a lot of nice stuff!!

    (From Italy)

  3. Spam spam... But he's Italian so..ok.

    Oh, ross, dragon warrior??

  4. Well, maybe the games were known as 'Dragon Quest' in your region (until the eigth game in the series the games have always been known as 'Dragon Warrior' in America instead of 'Dragon Quest', as its known in other parts of the world), but its the most popular game series. The games are RPGs, and are incredibly lengthy games. The Walk Throughs for them are super long as well!

  5. Er, I meant this;

    "...but its the most popular game series in Japan".

  6. The trouble with Apprentice is despite its claims to be fairly easy you run into trouble if you miss stuff anywhere. And its VERY easy to miss stuff.

    They might have made it a bit more obvious you can skip that intro (by pressing ESC I discovered when testing if a saved game would restore ok).

    I'd been playing it for less than 5 minutes before I was googling a walkthrough. So it must be pretty shit.

  7. Truth be saud Ray I never encountered a problem wit Apprentice.
